Loch Lomond 13, 2005-2018, 50% – Whiskybroker

This heavily peated Loch Lomond was bottled by Whiskybroker.co.uk in 2018, and if it was an official bottling this would have been called Croftengea, Inchmoan or Inchfad, since that’s how they brand their heavily peated whiskies normally. Because this is … Continue reading

Inchmoan 25yo, 1992-2017, 48.6%

Inchmoan is not really a brand that many people know of. It’s one of the lesser known names used for spirit by the Loch Lomond distillery, with Loch Lomond and Inchmurrin being the more public ones. Inchmoan is Loch Lomond’s … Continue reading
